New Birth of Garden and Park Complexes

New Birth of Garden and Park Complexes

This year, the city of Yerevan celebrated its 2800th anniversary, a holiday, which brings pride to every citizen of our capital. But what holiday without a nice gift? The park dedicated to 2800th anniversary of Yerevan became such a gift for our city. Another gift was the restoration of the park between Saryan Str. and Mashtots Ave. and construction of Smart Park by Vardanyan family, which is a new venture for Yerevan. Yet, the opening of the park dedicated to 2800th anniversary in November has been postponed until spring, for a number of objective reasons. The main work in the park is completed, but operation of fountains is impossible due to technical standards. “Fountains, which are complex hydraulic structures, have clear technical requirements for weather conditions’’, said Valentin Bukovsky, the Chief Engineer of VODALUX, the famous manufacturer of fountains, “Weather conditions, from abscission to frost, can harm the entire system of the fountains”.

The famous Malibu park, already renovated, opened its doors this year in the city center. The restoration work was carried out by the owner of the company “Tashir Group” Samvel Karapetyan. The park is equipped with 100m long new fountain systems and small houses for children covered with artificial grass. The number of trees in the park has increased by three times.

Taking into account the fact that Yerevan was designed as a garden city and not for so many people and heavy traffic, also given the rhythm of today's life, the need to increase green areas in the city has become urgent.

For 2800th anniversary of Yerevan in the administrative district of Erebuni, the first smart park in the city was built, which is a gift to citizens of Yerevan from Vahagn Badalyan charity foundation. The idea of creating such a park in Erebuni district of Yerevan is very important, because the birth and further development of Yerevan began from this area. '’Our dream was to build a park and give it to the citizens, and we are happy to realize this dream. There will be no commercial structures in the park - neither a shop nor a cafe. This is a new kind of park using only solar energy. It is like a piece of forest in a big city'‘, - said Vahe Badalyan. It should be noted, that the park has been in a terrible state for a long time. Now it has a playground, a chess table and skateboard track. The park has a picturesque artificial lake, a stage, a reading room and an amphitheater. It is important, that the design of the park took into account the needs of people with disabilities.
